When Accent Furniture Plays The Main Role

Accent furniture is supposed to stand out, as it complements the room decor. Well, it is clear, as the meaning of the word ‘accent’ is emphasis. Any furniture piece called ‘accent’ goes far beyond functionality only. It is the decorative piece above all. Actually, you may not even have a lot of practical need for it, but it mostly serves as an eye-catcher, the focal point giving the zest to your room design.

How to find the right accent piece and find out whether you need it at all in your space, you might ask. The key idea is to find something that delights your eye and gives your home something extra to make a statement. We, the FurnitureCart team, are here to give you few inspirational ideas that might work well for your lovely home.

Let’s start from the easiest part. Select small accent tables, that play a big role. No matter whether an unusual design of the newly bought set or DIY upgrade to the good old occasional tables – it works great both with emphasis and function. Make a twist in your room’s design with ornaments, glass, mirror, or work on your old piece by painting or making an inlay. These tables can be used or transferred to any room of your house – from living rooms to bedrooms. Small but elegantly designed bedside table can become the star of your bedroom.

A large and imposing furniture piece can simply become an accent piece. A rich curio, armoire or china cabinet will play the main part in a room with muted furniture ensemble. If you have a kind of busy room, the accent piece should win with the striking color, that matches with what you already have in your room.

You shouldn’t forget about the medium furniture. In movies, the supporting role might be even more important that the main part. The floral and jungle themes are a hot trend this year, so why not to go in style? Accent chests and cabinets make a statement whether in a living room or dining room. Spacious bedroom cannot get along without focal dresser with special design, if chosen within the frames of overall decor scheme.

Don’t omit the entryway, it deserves your attention the same as the other rooms do. Moreover, it is the perfect place to use the accent furniture. A chest tall enough not to bow, when placing the keys or post works well here. Prefer a chest with a strong color and an interesting shape to impress from the very first step into your home.

Feng Shui Bedroom

The focal and main point of your bedroom is undoubtedly bed. So, to make a decision where to place it right within the borders of the room is most common challenge one faces when setting up home. The challenge becomes even more exciting if you are setting up your home with the right feng shui energy flows. Let the FurnitureCart team help you with a few valuable advice.

You may know that you should not align the bed with the door. What does it actually mean? When your feet are in line with the door, you simply lose your energy at night, and as the classic feng shui says, your personal energy gets weaker. Doors are believed to be the connectors, and through the doors the energies are pulled from one area to another. So, if your feet are pointing at any door in room, either the main one, or the bathroom door and even balcony door, it is high time to cure the energy loss and do something with the bed position.

The first remedy for bedroom is to move the bed off that line. Still, if it’s impossible, another solution is to block the leak of energy by a tall and solid footboard. If you love your platform bed, and it has no or low footboard, there is another way to solve it: place a piece of furniture between the bed and the door. An upholstered bench or a small dresser with a solid back, – just a couple of ideas for your imagination flow.

The door is just the beginning! Another thing is about the mirror: mirror facing the bed and reflecting your body while you are sleeping is no good. The reason is in the fact that it depletes or exhausts your energy instead of rebuilding it during night hours. Solution is in moving the mirror or changing its angle. If it’s ‘not in your cards’ – cover the mirror with any decor for a night time (curtains, for instance).

Avoid any heavy items hanging over your bed (like chandelier or ceiling fan). Why? It creates heavy and oppressive energy. If there is no possibility to move the bed, or say, there is a huge ceiling beam overhead that can’t be removed – use an easy and light canopy to be protected.

Moreover, if you have a bedroom with a sloped ceiling, you better move your bed so that the head is under the highest point of the ceiling. The very sloped parts apply pressure to your energy, leading to health problems and depressed feelings.

If your bed is placed under a window, to keep the energy flows right add a solid headboard or use heavy window curtains or blinds to cover the window. From the other side, positioning bed closer to the bedroom door is not a good solution either. The wall containing the door means a bed is open to a rush of active energy. In this case, create a barrier that helps to be defended from the harsh energy rushing in.

Avoid sharp objects and corners, decorative arms pointed at your body while you sleep. Soften your bedroom as much as you can allow, with fabric, throws and pillows, flowers and plants, or another soft object.

A bed placed against the wall restricts the energy flow. Furthermore, if you share it with your partner, it brings an imbalance in the relationship. It is better to pull the bed away from the wall for a clear access from both sides, and balance it right with the nightstands from both sides. For small living spaces – centre the bed for equal space from both sides, no matter how small it is.
